your lappy screen is not self illuminating it requires a backlight run through an inverter either or both of these components is BUSTED...

I seen this website when i googled laptop screen gone dark, i have got a invertor which i removed from an old laptop, can i use that 1 or is there a particular inverter for each laptop.
Many thanks

Sounds like the backlight on the screen or the screen inverter has gone.

Depending on model it is fixable by a competent user click here

Otherwise needs to go for repair c£85
